Summary

Wheaton's tenure with the Steelers ended with more disappointment. He tried to play through a torn labrum in his right shoulder but eventually went on injured reserve and had the injury surgically repaired. The Bears believe there is something there after Wheaton habitually underwhelmed in Pittsburgh, signing him to a two-year, 11 million dollar deal with six million dollars guaranteed. Wheaton has the speed to stretch the field outside, and he could see the field in three-wide sets with Cameron Meredith shifting inside to the slot, although the Bears have reloaded at tight end, so three-wide personnel groups might not be the norm. The Bears will certainly attempt to get their money's worth out of Wheaton, but it's difficult to see those efforts resulting in fantasy relevance. (May 21)
